    7. “Stay” – MNDR | Buy

    I feel like I’m behind on this one, as this album came out in 2012. Better late than never? This whole album by MNDR, Feed Me Diamonds, is amazing. If you like Icona Pop, Grouplove, or Santigold, this one’s for you.

    6. “The Way” – Ariana Grande Feat. Mac Miller | Buy

    I absolutely LUB this song. Ariana Grande is adorable, and if you don’t know who she is, give it a month. Mac Miller is on this track and is super creepy in this video. Ariana, move on – you can do better than a guy with pubes on his chin. Read the rest of this entry »

    Dear GodJesus,

    It’s me, Jillboard. I just wanted to say thank you for descending this song from the heavens and landing it upon my thy power ear drums. Thus am thankful for thee powers and thy willingness to compell thee with musical glory–

    I have no clue how to pray.

    BUT this song is the best thing I’ve heard in like a year and a half and I really do want to thank Godjesus for it. This video gives me the UTMOST of goosebumps. The kiss in this video needs to be considered for an VMA for best kiss. I’m literally obsessed and have listened to this song 25 times/day for 2 weeks straight. You do the math (CAUSE I CAN’T). I don’t know who you are, Disclosure, but I want to rip your head off and swallow it.

    Also, here’s an awesome remix of it by The White Panda (#21 “Cooler Than Latch”)

    Ok so I was actually introduced to this song by my teacher. Yes, my teacher. That’s what happens when you’re a music student. Your teachers are actually cool, they show you awesome music, and they kind of sound like Charlie from It’s Always Sunny. Driving bass, intoxicating female vocals, and…you know, other stuff.

    From Wikipedia: “The Knife are a Swedish electronic music duo from Stockholm, formed in 1999.[3] The group consists of siblings Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer, who together also run their own record company, Rabid Records. The group gained a large international following in response to their 2003 album Deep Cuts. The group and this specific album later received further attention when a cover of their song “Heartbeats”, rearranged for acoustic guitar by José González, appeared in a Sony commercial.”

    This is awesome! It’s like Passion Pit meets ladies meets putting your lighter in the air and swaying whilst intoxicated. Or something like that.

    CHVRCHES (pronounced ‘churches’) has a cool ass sound and I’m definitely into it. Can’t you just see Lena Dunham throwing up in a sewer in Bushwick to the beat of this song?

    Icona Pop is the chit lately. You know these girls from their hit song “I Don’t Care”, which has a killer beat. This one is equally as killer, but in a different way. It’s super happy and fun and girly (I think) and let’s dance or something! I’m 21 now. See you out there, world.
